Caldwell Chameleon SC 1.79x T2
The Caldwell Chameleon Anamorphics are small lightweight and compact with the classic blue flare and characteristics that one would expect from classic anamorphic.
The 1.79x anamorphic squeeze ratio is the perfect balance of anamorphic look and maximal use of the sensor area. Having two series with different image circles allows the cinematographer to embrace character and edge aberrations, or opt for a cleaner, more restrained image depending on the shot or project.
Using 1.79x squeeze ratio is better suited to digital sensors, the chameleons can be configured with different rear optical groups for different applications: covering S35+cameras or configured to cover the large format cameras like the Venice, miniLF and Red Monstro.
1.79x Squeeze / Lens Length 142mm / Front Diameter 114mm
